bikini bottom

1 1/2 oz Plantation Stiggins' Fancy Pineapple Rum
3/4 oz Averna
3/4 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Simple Syrup
5 leaf Mint

Shake with ice and strain into a rocks glass. Fill with crushed ice, add straws, and garnish with a mint sprig and 3 spritzes Laphroaig Scotch.
Two Tuesdays ago, my bar shift let out in time to catch last call at Brick & Mortar. For a libation, I asked bartender Rob Hoover for the Bikini Bottom which seemed like a delightful yet complex Daiquiri-Smash hybrid. Once built, the Bikini Bottom shared a mint and smoke aroma. Next, caramel from the Averna paired with the lime on the sip, and the swallow offered rum, herbal, pineapple, and mint notes.
